Turning a little into a lot

There is a story relayed from Jesus' life in the Gospels where he takes five loaves and two fish (the lunch of a little boy) and feeds a crowd of 5,000 with them.
I believe the principle is significant.

When we have something.  Anything.  And we give it to God to use, He can multiply it to volumes we never dreamed of.


The act that makes that happen is simply giving it to Him. And I am continually surprised that God patiently waits for the invitation. That He is never boastful, rude or self-seeking.

The beauty of waiting for our willingness--even for something as powerful as multiplication--is humbling. I am forever amazed at the character of the One we chase after.
